Study: The Dos and Don'ts of Smartphone Use

We’ve come a long way since the Zack Morris brick phone was what people thought of when thinking about cell phones. With cell phones, specifically smartphones, becoming a normal thing to see everyone around you using a basic set of socially acceptable rules has been evolving around their use.

Now we have a new study from University of Essex detailing what people would and wouldn’t do with their smartphones. While the study only polled 100 people it did have some interesting findings as a result of this study. In the study it was found that 50% of millennials approved of texting during a meal, while only 15% of people 30 and above approve of that same action. Similar results occurred that showed that younger people are more accepting of using smartphones in a way that go against traditional etiquette.
